The Little Blessing

It’s been a while now, that I am in friendship with her; the little cute Tulasi plant (holy Basel). I happened to notice her during a summer where we were suffering from the kind of drought which I never had experienced before. We had to fetch water and take it to our house. Thank God, for the big office cab we had! We were praying to the rain god to shower life on us! Everything was dried out; plants and grasses were already dead and only big trees survived.

I was always taught to worship Tulasi.  Apart from that I always had a special affection and love for her. She gave me the first-aid to a centipede’s bite which I had to go though, many times in my life and many a time as a relief to my breathing problem when I get cold. There’s no disease that she couldn't cure and she always blessed me with her magical cure whenever I wanted. As you know, she is the best home remedy for anything and everything.

Now seeing a little Tulasi plant getting dried out I felt extremely bad and guilty. I had only so much of water to serve myself. But I decided to give her a cup of water everyday. The more devoted I was, the happier we both became. And with me she also overcame the drought and then came, the monsoon. By then she had grown out to be a big Tulasi plant. Now she is there smiling at me everyday. It’s really a bliss to see her every morning and then go to office. And when my roommates are away, it’s just her who gives me a company in which I cherish a lot. I love watching her smiling at me and I should admit that she has that power to rejuvenate the soul. For me she is not just a plant but she’s “Tulasi Maharani” and hope you all know the story behind her birth, the one explained in Hindu mythology. I can feel the blessing, I am surrounded by. I can feel the love she showers, the positive energy she spreads; it’s just awesome, no words to express.

“Jai Tulasi Maharani!”
